WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Republican Governors Association (RGA) released new television and digital ads Wednesday in the North Carolina gubernatorial race targeting Democratic Governor Roy Cooper’s failed leadership. The RGA also released a new website, MeetRoyCooper.com containing key facts about the governor’s record.
The first ad, titled “How Liberal,” further exposes Cooper’s failure to protect communities by vetoing legislation that would have prevented Sanctuary Cities in North Carolina by requiring local law enforcement to cooperate with their federal partners. This comes on top of Cooper vetoing billions of dollars in public safety funding.
The second spot, titled “Incompetent,” puts a spotlight on the Cooper administration’s failure to get assistance to struggling North Carolina workers who found themselves unemployed through no fault of their own due to coronavirus-related economic shutdowns. With nearly a million North Carolinians out of work, the state was ranked last in the nation for timely distribution of unemployment benefits and continues to lag behind.
“Keeping communities safe and running a functioning government is the bare minimum that citizens deserve from their governor, but liberal Roy Cooper has failed across the board,” said RGA Communications Director Amelia Chassé Alcivar. “Governor Cooper has served his partisan political agenda instead of the people of North Carolina at every opportunity, and working families are paying the price.”
Those without the Democratic Party blinders on have seen this repeatedly over these last four years. While the costs of pain and suffering of Cooper’s “leadership” is clear to see in 2020, with fomenting Pandemic Panic and abusing our rights and mandating job and livelihood losses, the evidence of this pandering goes back way longer than just his term as governor.
If you agree that Cooper’s incompetence and pandering to the Radical Left should get booted out of office in November, make sure you help make that happen by pointing the above out to your voting friends. Moreover, make sure they are clear in the alternative, a real leader, offered by Dan Forest.
